Along with thousands around the globe,
I’ve been watching that red-tailed hawk’s nest high up on a light tower on the
Cornell campus, since the eggs were laid in March.Some foolish starlings picked a hole in that dark support on the left, six inches up from the hawks, for their nest. It’s been fun watching the dark starlings dart in and out, feeding their chicks, ignoring the
danger. But it wasn’t fun a few days
ago, when the youngest hawklet was alone in the nest after its siblings had taken
their first flights, and the parent starling flew in with lunch in its beak. Young hawk on the right, chick peeking out lower right of the dark support. Parent starling yelling. To see what happens, click below.
